Your side dish selection can definitely make or break a monumental meal like Thanksgiving. May the following recipes all be delicious additions to your family’s table this year, yielding plenty to pad your plate!
The Creamed Corn [above] is a famous fixin’ from Ronnie Killen of Killen’s Steakhouse in Pearland, TX. We’ve featured Ronnie’s sister restaurant, Killen’s Barbecue, on a previous episode of Goodtaste with Tanji. You’ll see a lot of smiles around the dinner table with this recipe ready for serving! 🙂
Perhaps nothing is more timely this Thanksgiving than these Maple Yams. They’re baked for one hour on their own, before being mixed with hearty, homestyle ingredients like butter, vanilla, cinnamon, nutmeg and maple syrup. Then, back into the oven they go! Dressed with roasted pecan halves:
A wise choice would be these warm and toasty Cheddar Onion Biscuits, baked with chopped bacon and the finished product brushed with melted butter just before serving. They’re heavenly!
These pint size Portabella Mushrooms from Chef Chemo Barrera of The Well in San Antonio come stuffed with Green Bean Casserole for your special day. Fifteen minutes tops in the oven:
High caliber cauliflower this Thanksgiving! This Roasted Cauliflower side comes plated with marinated olives, sun-dried tomatoes, red peppers and parsley, but it’s the spicy Harissa Tzatziki sauce that will steal the show…
We’re crazy for this Cranberry Compote from my friends at Frank. Try serving hot or cold with your turkey, or adding ginger for a nice “bite”!
Also from Frank, this Whipped Honey Pumpkin Butter that compliments a variety of fare, from traditional dinner rolls to dessert! Sub all the non-butter ingredients for the Cranberry Compote above and you have Whipped Cranberry Butter!
